If I time my riddles right,

I'll make a point that knows no sense.

For this is why I write,

to make my perception worthy of defense.

No matter what you say,

there will be those who hate you for where you are standing.

Though there can be no love without sword-play,

there is only pity in sitting.

If you sit for or without a cause,

you find yourself without enemy, nor good friend.

In life, you cannot pause,

because the death of man is not the end.

We should be willing to die for our views,

so they can live on,

even after we bid our final adieus.

After all, what is life but a pawn?

Our collective thoughts wear the real crown.
